Myanmar Girls

Years of isolation and a conservative Buddhist ethic have resulted in a consistent dress code of long skirts, covered shoulders and breastbone. The result should have been restrictive but instead created an exploration of colour and texture. The long wrap skirts of the Burmese lady are graceful and flattering, producing a tulip shape and forcing an elegant gait. The simple but elegant line is canvas to an interplay of colour and texture.
